Great new "fixes to the new features"

A while ago I made a post that some new CommCare features were so helpful I
wanted to point them out… Now I have some new nominations… (Note, I
know there are always new features 30 times more profound than the ones I’m
mentioning, these just rang a bell.)

This time it is as much because of the principle that these new features
demonstrate.

Namely: back when dimagi released the new colorful mobile user interface,
they paid attention and noticed that a few of the new features introduced
new problems (as new features often do.) But you guys have now actually
fixed them (and I never even took the time to whine about them to begin
with)

They are:

1-- Now I see that the Update CommCare command now is back to doing the
full update execution in ONE STEP. That is so much better than when you had
it requiring multiple button presses to update. Because now when we
communicate on how to update to the workers in the field, our instructions
can be super clear and easy.

2-- The end-of-form form submission behavior. First you made it so that
after the last question, you simply needed to press the green triangle to
submit. Great, but again, could be confusing for workers that were not used
to that. So you made the fix to have the “bouncing green arrow” to remind
any confused users of the new way to submit at the end.

My point – The fact that you followed up, and didn’t merely say “hey, it’s
the new version, get used to it,” is appreciated

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the positive feedback - it makes our day over here! We always
appreciate it when users let us know when features could be working better
for them - it’s likely others are experiencing the same thing. Please keep
the feedback (positive and constructive) coming!
